41 CO N N E C T Fellowship As my theme suggests, this year we will be focussing on fellowship and relationship building. To this effect we have a special convenor, the Fellowship Convenor, who will plan out events to strengthen our bonds. One such event in the pipeline is a Fellowship Cruise. More details will reach you at the appropriate moment. We do find that some of our members are out of the streamline as they have only a very few members in their club and unable to enjoy the fellowship of 41ers on regular basis. In order to get them back on to the mainstream, we have thought of assigning a dedicated 41 Day each month when 41ers of the town can meet up at a given venue. This is already working out well in Hyderabad and we propose to take it forward to benefit all.
CARE Program Yet another initiative to build relationships with our own members and their family, we have thought of internal YAP programme – the CARE Programme which stands for ★ Culture ★ And ★ Relationship ★ Experience - the details of which will be worked out by our YAP Conveners. Looking forward to a blasting year of fun, frolic and fellowship. Let’s make it count. Dr.V. Siddharthan President
